The past decade has seen the rise of a movement, "evangelical feminism," that has had a profound impact. In Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood 22 men and women commit their talents to produce the most thorough response yet to evangelical feminism. The book combines systematic argumentation with popular application. It deals with all the main passages of Scripture brought forward in this controversy. All who are concerned with the fundamental question of the proper relationship between men and women in home, church, and society will want to read this important and informative book.

"Thorough and careful scholarship here blend beautifully with reverent and realistic wisdom about church, home, and personal life. Future explorations of Bible teaching on sexual identity, vocation, and roles will have to come to terms with the powerful argumentation that the Piper-Grudem team has mounted in support of the old paths. A pastoral and academic landmark." --J.I. Packer

"Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is an excellent resource. John Piper and Wayne Grudem are to be strongly commended for giving us a convincing, compassionate, and balanced presentation that deserves our serious attention." --Lawrence J. Crabb

"There are few subjects that evoke greater emotion and polarization in the evangelical church than Christian feminism. This book is a helpful addition to the literature on this important subject. The authors do us a valuable service by presenting this material for peer review." --Jay Kesler

"The feminist movement, a massive assault on reality and 'the divine order of being,' calls for a massive counter-attack. John Piper and Wayne Grudem have provided such with Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, a work that could prove as useful in refuting 20th-century Gnostic insanity as Irenaeus' Against Heresies was against the Gnosticism of the second century." --Harold O.J. Brown
